Students will follow my step by step guidance to build a “rocket” powered by the chemical reaction between Diet Coke and mentos candies. ******Students *must* have materials for class to be a successful experience for them******* Step one: ****please read and prepare before class begins****** Prepare materials and launch site Allow 2 litre bottle of Diet Coke to sit either in the warm sunshine or to rest in a pot of warm (not boiling!) pot of water for an hour before class. Warm soda...
Students will use the scientific method by analyzing the materials in the experiment and determining what they can change (variables.) Students will assess what single variable they would like to change and predict the change in outcome. Students will repeat the experiment with their one changed variable and determine the difference in outcome. Was the change as you predicted? Why or why not? Students will observe a chemical reaction and experience the energy created from that reaction.
2 2 liter Diet Coke bottles Mentos, mint and/or fruit flavoured Safety goggles or glasses Tape An outdoor location that can get fizzy coke/candy on it Access to water or a hose to clean site Optional—a different soda or different sized Diet Coke bottle for the second experiment
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parents should make sure they are comfortable with students handling a coke bottle that may erupt with some force. Make sure your child is able and willing to follow safety procedures. Parents should check the launch site to make sure students will not harm anyone or anything. A 50 foot radius should be sufficient. (I will be on my driveway.)
